asked the Under-Secretary of State for India what is the scheme for the demobilisation of the Burma section of the Indian Army.

I assume that the hon. and gallant Member has in mind the personnel of the Burma Army, including officers of the Army in Burma Reserve of Officers and the Burma Auxiliary Force who since the evacuation of Burma have been serving alongside the Indian Army. The Government of Burma have recently indicated that the release regulations for the Burma Army are about to be published and that they follow closely on the lines of those already published for the Indian Army. The release of officers and British other ranks of the latter is linked with that of members of the British Services in the same Age-and-Service group, the only difference being that at present there is a time lag caused by the voyage.
